"That Old Ace in the Hole" by Annie Proulx 

Wednesday, May 15, 2024, 6 p.m.

That Old Ace in the Hole takes place in rural Texas, where Bob Dollar is scouting locations to set up hog farms for the Global Pork Rind Corporation. He encounters resistance from the locals but persists, eventually becoming a part of the community as he finds a place to live and helps at the local café. But, as he gets closer to the people, he begins to question his way of life and the workings of the world.

A writer of short stories as well as longer works of fiction and nonfiction, Annie Proulx is perhaps most famous for her short story Brokeback Mountain, which was made into a popular film.
